Books as a Quantum Mindset Accelerant

As a former sales and marketing executive and the co-founder of a national franchise brand, Malvina supported dozens of entrepreneurs in a quest to achieve their American dream. During her extensive career as a business coach, Malvina noticed that there was no amount of business strategy that could compensate for a gap in one’s mindset.
Since then Malvina has made the commitment to dedicate her professional career to helping leaders release their mindset blocks and rewire their brains for success using the newest neuroscience and quantum strategy tools. This allows her clients to make the impact they’re born to make in the world.

In the winter months, you may spot her ice-climbing in Ouray, Colorado while in the summer you’re more likely to find her in Paris hosting an annual Paris Retreat for High-Achieving Women.
Below I had the pleasure of interviewing Malvina for this “Great Books, Great Minds” feature on the impact that books can have in building a quantum mindset. Here’s what Malvina had to share:
A little about your life journey and how it now informs what you share with clients?
My fascination with the power of the human mind began over 20 years ago. I grew up in Poland, during communism, where I experienced limitations rather than opportunities, scarcity rather than prosperity, and hopelessness rather than hope.
In the midst of this gray reality, I saw first hand how the power of mindset can install hope, shift perspective, and move an entire nation towards taking peaceful and productive action towards creating a better life.
Were there individuals you found to be particularly influential in leading this movement?
I witnessed one of the world's most influential motivational speakers share a message of hope and possibility with the people of Poland. His words landed on the ears of a Polish labor worker and inspired him to take peaceful action towards changing the status quo. The name of that motivational speaker - Pope John Paul II. And the labor worker was Lech Walesa, leader of the Solidarity movement who “led a successful pro-democratic effort which in 1989 ended the Communist rule in Poland and ushered in the end of the Cold War.” - Wikipedia. He then went on to be elected as a President of Poland and receive a Nobel Peace Prize.
What do you find is the biggest barrier that many of us face in embodying a more purposeful life?
We have been conditioned to buy into a collective dream of happiness instead of celebrating our individuality and showing up as our authentic selves in our vocation and lifestyle. As a result we see more and more people dealing with chronic stress, depression, identity crisis, and burnout. Furthermore we have been taught to control our emotions, which certainly can help us survive. But in the end we must find a way to be in touch with our emotions if we want to thrive.
Can you share some of the advice on one can relinquish their past for a new future?
For many of us, it is the most painful times in our lives that shape our life purpose. My advice to those who are on a quest to discover their life purpose would be to become vulnerable in asking themselves two questions: What is the hardest thing you had to overcome in life? And what is the change you’d like to see in the world? Once you are clear on your WHY, you can begin to look at your unique set of skills and experiences that will determine HOW you will fulfill your life purpose.
Pablo Picasso said it best…“The meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose of life is to give it away.”
We are in the midst of an unprecedented time of change and uncertainty in our world. How can we all better prepare for the inevitable transitions we are facing in our lives?
The pre-pandemic world doesn't exist anymore. We’re entering the quantum age that demands a paradigm shift in business leadership and in our thinking.
Change is an INSIDE out job. As a Quantum Mindset Coach, I tell all my clients that if they want to see different results, they must be willing to recalibrate their mindset. That includes learning how your mind works, healing childhood traumas, neutralizing triggers, releasing trapped motions, reprogramming limiting beliefs, and installing new habits that will support your life vision and your goals. It can be daunting but my framework enables my clients to complete this journey in just 12 weeks.
What role have books and reading played in your life?
I believe that knowledge is power because it removes fear. From the neuroscience perspective, reading books is a cognitive exercise that allows the brain to improve its functions by forming new connections between existing neurons and growing new neurons. The so called “aha” moments we experience when learning new concepts can be explained as rapid shifts in neural activity that allow for a new habit or belief to be formed thus shifting the results in our life.
What authors and books have had the most powerful influence on your thinking and mindset?
Power vs Force by Dr. David Hawkins
The Biology of Belief by Bruce Lipton Ph.D.
The Power of Decision by Raymond Charles Barker
The Science of Mind by Ernest Holmes
The Power of Your Subconscious Mind by Joseph Murphy
Day Job to Dream Job by Kary Oberbrunner
Quantum Leadership by Frederick Chavalit Tsao
What is your preferred method of reading? Hardback/paperback, digital, or audio book?
My default has always been the hardback/paperback but in the spirit of embracing change and training my mind, I try to mix it up. I have an Audible account with a library of audio books that have proven quite convenient for a digital nomad like myself when traveling.
What drives you to seek your own personal highest self on a daily basis?
For me the journey to my highest self is about transcending my Ego and coming back to Oneness. Oneness with the Divine, with the Spirit so we can experience ourselves as the infinite potential. It’s the ultimate quest to raise our consciousness. And the embodiment, rather than the intellectual understanding of this concept, is the path towards it. David Hawkins, the father of consciousness, said “We change the world not by what we say or do, but as a consequence of what we have become.”
As a Spiritual Psychology Coach, I do just that - In my signature coaching program, The Embodied Quantum Leader, I guide the next generation of conscious entrepreneurs towards building a lucrative career as a force for good and making the impact they were born to make!
